IPL / BBL for rosacea
These light based treatments can be very effective for the redness and flushing component of rosacea. By treating the blood vessels, the vascular response is diminished. We have seen dramatic results for patients with rosacea even in patient who were suffering from stinging and burning from their rosacea . After several treatments their symptoms were gone. Please note the worse your rosacea, the more treatments you will need for optimal results. Lastly, none of the laser or light based devices will "cure" you of rosacea . We are just treating one part of the problem and your genetic backgorund and environmental exposure, diet and UV exposure will be important to keep things in check.
IPL is an excellent choice for facial redness, and the fact that you are fair skinned makes the choice of doing a laser procedure even better since you are at low risk of complications. You will likely need a series of 6-8 treatments spaced a month apart each, and should place on being out of the sun immediately before and after these treatments.
Another very effective option is the flash-lamp pulsed dye laser (FLPD) at 585 or 595nm. The most current and effective FLPD laser on the market is the "V-Beam". This is the gold standard to facial vessels and rosacea, although, some would argue that IPL can give you very comparable results.
After you get your rosacea treated, the effect should last about 1 year plus or minus. It is NOT uncommon to have to return for yearly or even semi-annual touchups. Please discuss your laser and the treatment plan thoroughly with your physician before beginning your sessions. Best of luck!
IPL is a great choice for treating the redness associated with rosacea.
